The Presidential Security Group (PSG) states that it is ready to protect President Rodrigo Duterte against the threat of Maute Group to execute him.
Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, PSG Spokesman, said their personnel are well equipped since they are trained to protect the president against any threat.
The terrorist group left the threat through a warning written on a board inside a school in Butig, Lanao Del Sur before the government troops took over the area.
Prior to this, Pres. Duterte made a warning that the government is facing another serious problem aside from illegal drugs, terrorism.
The president stressed that the country should be ready in the next two to three years for any terrorism threat.
